Prayer & Faith – An Excerpt

I’ve shared a couple of excerpts that have impacted me greatly, at different times… They’re also a glimpse into some of the books I’ve read in the past and highly recommend… Today’s excerpt is from a “classic” on prayer and faith:

“A dear friend of mine who was quite a lover of the chase, told me the following story: ‘Rising early one morning,’ he said, ‘I heard the baying of a score of deerhounds in pursuit of their quarry. Looking away to a broad, open field in front of me, I saw a young fawn making its way across, and giving signs, moreover, that its race was well-nigh run. Reaching the rails of the enclosure, it leaped over and crouched within ten feet from where I stood. A moment later two of the hounds came over, when the fawn ran in my direction and pushed its head between my legs. I lifted the little thing to my breast, and, swinging round and round, fought off the dogs. I felt, just then, that all the dogs in the West could not, and should not capture that fawn after its weakness had appealed to my strength.’ So is it, when human helplessness appeals to Almighty God. Well do I remember when the hounds of sin were after my soul, until, at last, I ran into the arms of Almighty God.”

The excerpt is from A.C. Dixon in E.M. Bound’s book, The Necessity of Prayer… You can download The Necessity of Prayer here

I thought I’d do a follow up on the second essential which, together with the first one form a solid and requisite foundation for success.

The Bridge Between Dream Vision And Fruition – Essential 1

Many a times we hear about people who had great potential but never got to see it fully realized. Or we know people that are ever talking about our dreams and what they hope to achieve one day.

But we never really see any progress in terms of the dreams being actualized. Perhaps we are those people! You know the ones ever sharing about our dreams but hardly inching any closer? I’ve been there too.
